    No one can say for sure. Plan on a late 09 release, good ol Black Friday type stuff but don't be surprised by a Q1-10 date. Remember that they are looking at releasing several Berries through the end of the year.

    Fall 2009 seems realistic.

    CX has suggested a release by the end of the year in another thread. Bearing that in mind, I might guess Black Friday or early December. Only time will tell for sure, though.

    I don't know sh!t, but instincts (plus rumors) says it probably a Christmas Season release... like others above has suggested.

    Just hold onto your stup!d chocolate for bit more... you can wait for the good stuff. You'll be glad you did. I've been suffering with this stup!d Curve for over 18 months and I'm still waiting for Sprint to get it together and release this 'Tour'. (BTW, 'Tour' name svcks. Onyx WAY cooler.)

    Well now that the Tour has been officially released I'm sure the Onyx will be the next on the list.

    Also does anyone know how long it took for the Tour to go from the rumor/leaked pics/unoffical info, to the actual release date? it could be a good guidline for the Onyx!

    I think RIM is getting more mainstream in their marketing and device release dates. Generally speaking you can pretty much bet devices will drop early summer to battle the likes of the iPhone and of course anywhere from Thanksgiving time in November to Christmas in December.

    Yeah Crucial said in another thread that he didn't think that fall '09 was going to happen, but that it was likely going to release by the end of the year, if I recall correctly. I'm hoping this pans out!

    Last to Tweets from CX re:Onyx

    "BlackBerry Onyx mass production had been pushed back until Sept. It has now been pushed up. The powers that be want this device out soon! "

    "the delay was in parts, as they hadn't been released yet. But they're ready. One carrier already has a launch date set for the Onyx!"

    I talked to our T-Mo Rep and she said that it would be out in the fall. Wouldn't tell me when since she said they're still testing the demos and stuff but definitely fall.

    She referred to it as the 3G Blackberry for TMo so that = driftwood to me.

    You're gonna be pi$$ed if she meant the Third Generation Curve (8520). . Nice to hear that the Onyx is using tech that is just now ready! It'll definitely be top of the line! Thanks CX! Again.

    I just played with a dummy Onyx at Best Buy. Definitely has a Curve-type feel to it but appears to be a more solid build. Coming from a Bold, the keyboard is different and it is quite a bit smaller than the Bold's. But I'm excited about it. Power of the Bold in a smaller package, better camera, etc. The rep told me his guess is that AT&T will introduce it in a month or two since he already has the dummy. Can't wait!

    No it will not be released in a month. It has not even started mass production.

    CX, might that have been a Tour dummy? I can't imagine Onyx dummies being out yet.

    I would be inclined to agree. I can't see any carrier having dummy units of this device. More than likely it was a 9630.
